When I was 13, I had a 3rd nipple removed. Now I'm 32 and I feel a small painful lump right under the scar. Is this normal?

I have also noticed that the breast above my left one has a small round bead size lump that movies around. I get these sharp electric shock feeling right in the spot the small beaded lump is.. Also about 3 weeks ago my nipples started to hurt. Which never happens with me even before or during my period.

While it is less common is someone your age we do see patients at younger ages with breast cancer. For this reason you should never ignore a new breast mass.
